James Reader

Farms & Estates Semi Senior

James joined our specialist Farms and Estates team at Albert Goodman in 2019 after previously working as a Farm Manager on a large arable estate in Northamptonshire. Since then, James has begun his training to become a Chartered Accountant.

James has vast farming experience and after graduating from Harper Adams he travelled to Australia to drive combine and root crop harvesters. James still takes time off during the summer to help with harvest.

James is an active member in our charity, sustainability and innovation committees and enjoys promoting awareness to both farming clients and colleagues.

In his spare time, James helps at home on the farm and is also an avid Exeter Chiefs fan. More recently James has developed an interest in game butchery.
